What I am Thankful for

 Here in New Hampshire it seems we are in the full grips of Winter. We have had three snowstorms in a week. Today is Thanksgiving, and I am wondering where 2018 has gone. As I get older the years go quicker, with no sign of slowing down. Since it is Thanksgiving I want to share what I am thankful for. I have come through another year, with many lessons.

I am thankful for the adventures that lay ahead. Our living situation is changing, and to make the best of it we are making plans to travel. We are not tied down, and are going to make the best of it. In the next year we have plans to explore the American South and West. We are young, healthy, and have many miles in front of our feet.

I am thankful for our strength. We have faced challenges, but we are coming through them best we can. We have come through previous struggles. They have showed us how strong are, and what we are capable of. It has shown us we can make it through everything. No matter what comes we will rise above.

I am also thankful for my work. I’m a paraeducator for children with disabilities. My kids have given me a new outlook on life. My coworkers are great, and the position has given new value to my life. I am so happy I made a career change and never looked back.

I am thankful for many helping hands. We got married in September. We had so much help from many people. They planned showers, bachelorette parties and rehearsal dinners. They helped us set up, and made sure that everything ran perfect and made the day everything we dreamed of. I am thankful to be so loved.

So much to be Thankful for today. I am happy we have come through another year. I am looking forward to new adventures. I am thankful for this incredible life I get to live. What are you thankful for today? Family? A new job? Just life in general? Drop what your thankful for in the comments.

Till next time, and Happy Thanksgiving
